I was listening to a song by Kamelot; you can find the lyrics here. However, I can't understand the meaning of 'like' where it's used:
Tell me when the night is gone,
Like washed away,
Make a wish beneath the mourning star.
Does it mean to emphasize the humanity's extinction? As in, "not just gone, but like, washed away.", or does it mean something else? And, what does the morning star have to do with it?
